Mango Ice Kachang

$2.80 · 10 Reviews

Mango syrup was nice and not overpowering so you get to taste the other syrups as well. Cant really taste the condensed milk for some reason but still really good overall

This bowl of ice kachang is not only pretty (Instagram worthy picture) but it takes really good too! It has the right amount of all the sugary syrups, a generous amount of other ingredients (red bean, sweet corn, grass jelly, attap chee, etc.) In it and top it off with the rich mango sauce. This is no doubt a perfect dessert to cool yourself down in this crazy humid weather.

We’re back to the usual weather in Singapore, and the mango ice kachang here will surely help to cool you down.

As temperatures continually rise, cool down fast with bowls of icy treats at this Jurong West dessert stall. A favourite spot in the neighbourhood, Kim Lotus Dessert sees perpetual queues for their comforting sweet treats. It helps that the desserts are priced affordably — most average at $2, and there are over 40 options to choose from. Try the Mango Ice Kachang ($2.80), which puts a fruity spin on the familiar dessert, or the Mango Sago ($3.10) if you want big mango chunks instead. The generous ingredients see the likes of attap chee (palm seeds), red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly and agar agar. Tastemakers Wei Zhi Chiang and Zhihui Lim note that even though the mountain of shaved ice had been thoroughly drenched in a variety of flavoured syrups, condensed milk and mango purée, it didn't taste artificial and wasn't overwhelmingly sweet. For something a little richer, go for the Bo Bo Cha Cha ($2.30), available both hot and cold. Bear in mind that only the hot version sees the addition of red rubies!
Avg Price: $5 per person

Mad heat these days means you don't have to crack your brains to find excuses for desserts woop! Boasting a never ending long queue the whole time we were there, Kim Lotus serves up a big range of affordable traditional desserts. We tried the Mango and Durian Ice Kachang which both had hidden underneath a generous portion of ingredients and a good pour of syrup over. No artificial flavours and overwhelming sweetness, we can see why it's so popular among the residents here! #BurppleBestofJurong

Kim Lotus Dessert - There are many items in its menu but the one that most if not all the tables have to cool themselves down in the insane heat will have to be Mango Ice Kachang, Chendol & Mango Sago (Approx. 💵S$2.80) 🍧

For the uninitiated, a bowl of Ice Kachang contains Attap Chee (palm seed), Red Beans, Sweet Corn, Grass Jelly with cubes of Agar Agar.
Drenched in a mountain of shaved ice that's drizzled with Rose, Pandan, Sarsi & Gula Melaka Syrup. Adding on to the diabetic causing sugar high, a dollop of Mango Purée like sauce & condense milk finish the final product. 🤤

ACAMASTIPS & GTK💮: Bingsu for me is like an overpriced Ice Kachang, I'd rather have 10 of this over a freaking Bingsu. Cheap & Satisfying, one can't go wrong with such a Quintessential Dessert especially on this sunny island of ours. 🖖🏻

I'm not really an ice kachang kinda guy – mostly due to getting random syrups and gross pastes when I do try it out but the ones from Kim's justifies their perpetual queue.

A mango paste that went well with the well proportioned syrups (no sad unsweetened ice sections) and generous ingredients (been a while since I've had nice attap chees). Of course, we got the durian version as well, which I'd recommend if you'll not settle for anything less than the king. 👑

The perpetual queue may be daunting but worth it.

Not only is it affordable with most desserts going for $2, they're tasty, pretty generous with the ingredients and simply heaven-sent with the sweltering weather - thank goodness for this dessert shop during our journey to the west yesterday!

If you like to rainbow-anything, get their mango/ durian ice kachang. At least it's guaranteed to satisfy. I usually shy away from this and go for chendol instead, but surprisingly I preferred the ice kachang here. Every part was generously covered with the fruity mango/ durian (didnt taste too artificial to me!) and syrup without that cloying sweetness, and I loved digging for all the ingredients within the heap of ice.

Though a quintessential Singaporean dessert, my dad and I seldom order Ice Kachang. So... when I had a sudden craving for a heap of shaved ice topped with coloured syrup and sweet corn, I dragged my dad along to our favourite dessert stall Kim Lotus [金莲子] and added mangoes to the wonderfully sweet mix.
My mom, on the other hand is a die-hard Ice Kachang fan and the only durian lover in the family so she would often get the Durian Ice Kachang all for herself. With the many versions of Ice Kachang and it having evolved over the years, I do love the endless possibilities of toppings! Do help yourself to a bowl of Ice kachang if you are in the area, to cool off and satisfy your sweet cravings~
